Lateral lobes present, but not much developed, on segments 2, 3, and 4. Notosetae beginning on segment 4 and extending throughout the thorax. Ventral uncini beginning on segment 5. Uncini in double rows from segment 11 throughout thorax, and in a small number of the abdominal segments. Ventral shields present in the anterior part of thorax.
